With A Whisper

Pantomime - Tom Bagshaw
With A Whisper

Vengeance is all I wanted for him
Not the passion that burned within
I wanted to tear him down to size
To leave him there left without pride

With a whisper
With a kiss
The gun is fired
But you miss
He's in range
Try, try again
Bullets fly
It might take ten
It's only when 
You see him fall
That you can
Stand very tall
Blow the smoke
He's off your list
With a whisper 
With a kiss

He got what he's always deserved 
Though my tactics may seem absurd
Meeting me was a wrong turn
I taught him a lesson he needed to learn

With a whisper
With a kiss
The gun is fired
But you miss
He's in range
Try, try again
Bullets fly
It might take ten
It's only when 
You see him fall
That you can
Stand very tall
Blow the smoke
He's off your list
With a whisper 
With a kiss

Author's notes: Out of the mouths of babes, eh?  I guess maybe I had some homicidal tendencies back then. Hahahaha  I was 16 and had a pretty healthy hate for all men.  Did it show? lol  All these years later and I still like it.  I think it would make a really visual song.
